One Week Until the Seattle Rock N Roll Half-Marathon0

Posted by jodi in Training Diary (Sunday June 20, 2010 at 9:29 pm)

I’m still geared up to run the Seattle Rock N Roll half this Saturday, June 26th. I’m a little nervous, as my longest training run totaled 10 miles, and it’s been about five and a half years since I’ve covered the 13.1 mile distance. It feels right, though – I’m in as good of shape as can be expected while finishing my residency/fellowship training with two little kids, and it seems an appropriate way to bid farewell to Seattle after having spent an amazing five years here.

I finally visited Mount Saint Helens this weekend, a trip I have been meaning to take for years. I promised myself I would run there before leaving the area, so I ran my 5k yesterday evening – 23:45 (7:40/mile). I am going to break through that 23 minute mark someday (hopefully soon – it continues to tease me!).

I never even saw the mountain this weekend, though – the clouds/fog/rain completely obscured any possibility of a view. Ahhh, western Washington June weather. Who can complain when so much is right, though? I suppose that is just all the more reason to return someday.
